Syracuse Dental Office Welcomes New Dental Assistant

SYRACUSE, NY--(Marketwired - April 21, 2015) - Dr. Joan Laura, a premier Syracuse family and cosmetic dentist, welcomed a new dental assistant to Eastwood Dental Office in March.

Dr. Laura, who has been in practice for more than 25 years, hired Alexis Hasper to better serve her patients. Hasper will help create an even more comfortable and convenient environment for patients.

Hasper is currently working toward earning her Certified Dental Assistant license. In the state of New York, dental assistants are not required to be certified, but those who choose to go through a specialized licensure-qualifying program and standardized testing. Certified dental assistants are then able to offer a wider range of services, such as taking vital signs and selecting and pre-fitting temporary crowns. Dr. Laura said that the new assistant is already very skilled and is happy to see her working on her certification.

"We're excited to have such a skilled assistant on our team," Dr. Laura said. "She's a delight to have in the office. Our patients and staff already love her, and she's proving to be an excellent addition to our team."

Dr. Laura provides family and cosmetic dentistry under one roof. She practices out of her home, which has been in the family for five generations. She offers all-composite fillings, crowns, bridges, teeth-whitening treatments and crafts beautiful dentures for patients missing some of their teeth or all of their teeth. Dr. Laura has convenient hours for busy families and working professionals and provides same-day emergency care.

Dr. Laura also provides porcelain veneers to change the color, shape or size of teeth. Veneers can be used to completely remake a smile, or to cosmetically enhance one or multiple cracked, chipped, or discolored teeth. Veneers can also be used as a substitute for orthodontic treatment -- straightening teeth to perfection almost instantly. Dr. Laura's background in design allows her to be especially artful when designing a new smile.

Dr. Laura earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in fashion design from Parsons School of Design -- where she was named to the dean's list -- and then graduated cum laude from State University of New York Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. She has completed continuing education courses in cosmetic dentistry and root canals.

Dr. Laura is a member of the American Dental Association and New York State Dental Association. Dr. Laura is heavily involved in community service. She serves as a Lay Ecclesial Minister and annually supports the local hospice facility Francis House. Dr. Laura also provides free dental services to veterans every year on Veterans Day.

Dr. Laura recently partnered with SmartBox Web Marketing, a leading dental web marketing firm, to launch a new website. The new website includes a detailed list of dental services; click-to-call features and online appointment forms; and information about Dr. Laura and her dedicated staff. Dr. Laura and her staff will also update the website every month with blogs pertaining to practice services and changes in dentistry.
